A Beautiful Book
I have the distinct privilege to be part of an extraordinary book. The brain child of ZNE founder Chelise Stroud Hery, this book is a compilation of work from over 60 artists. The following quote, from the ZNE website, explains the inspiration behind this beautiful art book.
"In February of 2008, JoAnnA Pierotti, a founding member of the artist community known as ZNE, lost her mother suddenly and unexpectedly. In the week following, 68 artists from all over the world stepped forward. They provided artistic images and financial contributions in order to create an art volume which would express their sympathy, concern, and support.
The result is this extraordinary collection which celebrates motherhood and love, and honors loss and the healing process.
With an introduction by mixed media artist Chelise Stroud Hery, and inspirational quotes throughout ~ this book provides a diverse and heart filled collection of artwork created in various mediums."
The following image, entitled 'Memory,' is my contribution to the collection. I encourage you to visit the ZNE website and see the list of amazing artists who have contributed. There you can also purchase one of these lovely books.
